    I picked up a 4" deck plate a couple weeks back and finally had the time to intsall it. I also cleaned the throttle body and now my truck hums beautifully. One thing I've noticed is that now it idles at just above 1000 whereas I remember it idling at about 750 before. Is that normal or expected? I figure it's because of the cleaning and increased air flow. All I know is that I don't have a CEL and it accelerates better and smoother, so I'm happy with it. :D

    Was it fully warmed up when idling at 1000? If so, that is not normal.

    i installed my deck plate about a month ago and i don't notice a difference in sound unless i floor it. But im glad its working well for you. When i turn on my truck in teh mornings i idle at 1000 rpms, but if im at a stop light or something after the truck is warmed up ill only idle at like 500

    since i did the deck plate modification i have noticed a whistle when at about 2700 rpm. anyone else here it? its not very loud just kind of annoying.
    the K&N made much more difference then the deck plate did imo

    I've noticed it too. I wasn't sure if I was imagining it, but I've been driving with the deck plate out (too lazy too take it out after playing on trails) and I don't hear it anymore.

    Oh and my trucks seems to idle the same with it in and out. I'm not certain because I don't have a tach, but it sounds the same

    No whistle here, just pure awesome sound with a NAPA gold air filter.

    steve o 77 - the answer is yes, after it's warmed up it will idle at around 1000, however that's when it's in park or neutral. To RPain's point if I'm stopped with the truck in gear it will idle at around 500. I guess that info would've been helpful.

    :facepalm:

    Update:
    The idle is back down in the 750 range. I don't know, maybe there was some residual Seafoam in the intake that took a couple days to disappate? Whatever it was, it runs normal now.
